Welcome progress has been made since the late Bill Wassmuth first stood up to bigotry and hatred in northern Idaho. But the need for human rights education grows with every new generation of Idaho children. Today’s headlines only remind us there’s much more to be done.

We are 100% dependent on
generous people like you.

Hate is My Neighbor

During the early 1970s to the mid-1990s, white supremacists—under the umbrella of the Aryan Nation and Reverend Richard Butler, Minister of the Church of Jesus Christ Christian—sought to create an all-white homeland in north Idaho. Untold numbers of white nationalists, Holocaust deniers, white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and far-right Christians gravitated from all over the US to Hayden Lake, Coeur d’Alene, and eastern Washington.

If you are interested in this e-book, you can order today from Amazon. The Wassmuth Center receives a portion of the sales.
